    I worked at Heska full-time

    Pros

    Very progressive environment. If ideas are communicated properly, they are taken seriously by management, and implemented in an inclusive fashion. The company is pet friendly, and department heads have an open door policy (for the most part). Heska provides quality benefits; top tier health insurance, matched 401K, and stock options.

    Cons

    There is some interdepartmental animosity, but this is not unique to Heska! Overall communication can be improved. Salaries are below industry standards; however, the work atmosphere and the benefits far outweigh these issues. May need more middle management opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more effectively, delegate more efficiently, and carry on!

    I have been working at Heska full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The paid vacation and benefits are pretty much the only thing that make it worthwhile

    Cons

    The amount of drama and backstabbing at this place is unbelievable it's like high school times 10 and if you don't have a college degree they don't promote you they don't nothing or if you not related anybody working higher up then you're definitely not getting head

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers what they're worth especially the ones that go above and beyond
